Young African singers, dancers visiting Rhode Island this week

January 31, 2014

Growing up in Uganda, an east African country racked by war, AIDS and extreme poverty, life was a struggle for then 9-year-old Dorothy Nabwami, who was facing a very uncertain future 17 years ago.

Then the African Children’s Choir came along.

Nabwami was singing in her local Sunday school choir in her village when the African Children’s Choir chose her to be part of an international singing group.

“They gave me clothing and food and the ability to travel around the world,” she says.
